PAULDING – No more action has been taken toward demolishing the old county jail on Williams Street. Even though the jail has not been used in the past five years, the decision to tear it down has brought mixed emotions from Paulding County residents.

The jail, built in 1876, is used mainly for county storage.

After unsuccessful attempts to sell the building, Paulding County commissioners mutually agreed that the best option for the county would be to tear it down.

The community might be interested in contributing to saving the jail, especially if it is designated an historical building. Few of us could donate a large amount, but a lot of people could donate something. It's worth a try.
